Hey, I'll preface this to say I'm not labelling this person as a "scammer", but they've ghosted me since August so I thought I'd ask if anyone on the GC page knows a Michael Hofer from Kitchener Ontario? He runs Michael's Gear Emporium on Reverb: michael's Gear Emporium | Reverb

I sent him a $500 deposit (not through Reverb) on a guitar and after cancelling the deal he agreed to send back the money but ghosted me after that. I'm hoping it's an honest mistake, but its been about a month now and I've sent multiple messages and tried to call.

If anyone knows him, I'm asking for a favour to have him reach out to me. Thanks

I don't know Michael Hofer personally but I am located in Kitchener. I'm quite sure he was (recently) selling through Kijiji locally.
Please PM me if there is anything I might be able to help you with.
Thanks, yes he's selling on Kijiji too. I just messaged the listing and he replied but won't anymore as I revealed it was me...fun times.

Have someone to set up a meeting for something he’s currently selling? Preferably at his home (but tell someone where you’re going and bring a friend)…so you have his name and address should the cops need to get involved.
I already have his name and email + physical address. I won’t post here but I’ve sent an email to him saying cops are the next step. I don’t know what legal grounds I have though.
He’s blocked my phone number.

I guess the warnings worked. After a million messages he sent me a partial payment back. Lucky me…

thanks for the help!
